Are you a people person? A recent high school or university graduate? Looking for a career change? The Star News Group is looking for more sales executives to join the team and work closely with clients and colleagues at the Sunbury and Macedon Ranges Star Weekly.

To be successful in this role, applicants must be able to work autonomously and independently but also thrive in a team environment. In a position with a strong community focus, Star Weekly sales executives will engage in online, over the phone and face to face operations with clients and team members.

With a base salary and ability to work towards commission, successful applicants will need to be able to achieve multiple KPIs, in both print and digital areas.

Experience in the industry or field isn’t a prerequisite, but the ability to adapt to changing circumstances, work to deadlines and maintain discipline will fare exceptionally well for sales executives. Applicants must also have their driver’s license and reliable vehicle as well as effective written and oral communication skills.

With the potential to face rejection from clients, applicants will need to be resilient and have the ability to bounce back. Cold-calling and visiting clients and businesses will all be a part of the job.

“No day is ever the same here – there’s always something going on and you’ll never have a dull moment at Star Weekly,” says account manager Gayle Williams.

“The people you’ll meet and the connections you make will hold you in great stead for the future.”

On the job training will be provided to successful applicants, with a strong team culture and great office location in Keilor Park just waiting for the right fit.
